Prawn Nebula in Natural Color thumbnail
IC 4628, sometimes known as The Prawn Nebula, is an emission nebula located around 6000 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius

Shapley 1 Planetary Nebula thumbnail
Shapley 1 is a planetary nebula in the southern sky with a magnitude 14 white dwarf at it's center. It is approximately 4900 light years away, and one third of a light year across.

NGC 2736 - The Pencil Nebula thumbnail
NGC 2736, known as the Pencil Nebula is a part of the supernova remnants from the Vela pulsar, 815 light years away.

On the Shoreline of the Lagoon thumbnail
Next to the Lagoon Nebula, there lies the often overlooked collection of absorption, reflection and emission nebulae: NGC 6559, IC 1274, IC 1275, IC 4684, IC 4685, Barnard 303, LDN 227, LDN 213, and planetary nebula PN M 1-41.

Gum 15 / RCW 32 Hydrogen Emission Nebula thumbnail
Gum 15 is a cloud of hydrogen gas 3,000 light-years from Earth. It is shaped by aggressive winds flowing from the stars within and around it.

Animation of Lagoon Nebula Reprocessing Stages thumbnail
Often I like to see how an image is processed from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my reprocessed image of the Lagoon Nebula.

Horsehead Nebula in Hydrogen Alpha thumbnail
I decided to take advantage of the only clear night for over a week to play with some new toys: an Astronomik 6nm Hα filter, and a Starlight Xpress adaptive optics unit. After learning how to calibrate and use the AO, I settled on the Horsehead Nebula as my target.

The Butterfly Cluster thumbnail
The Butterfly Cluster, Messier 6, is an open cluster of hot blue stars with the brightest member being an orange giant star. Behind the cluster is the orange light of the Milky Way, and a beautiful cloud of excited Hydrogen alpha gas.

Bipolar Nebula NGC 6164 thumbnail
4200 light years distant, NGC 6164 is a bipolar emission nebula was created by a massive O-type star, 40 times as larger than the Sun.

Ceres passing by the Blue Horsehead Nebula thumbnail
Shown in this animation is the movement of Ceres over 8 hours, on the night of 4th June 2019, as it passed by the outer edge of IC4592, the Blue Horsehead Nebula.

Carina Nebula Up Close thumbnail
One of the largest nebulae in the sky, the Carina Nebula is visible to the naked eye in the southern sky.

Witch Head Nebula thumbnail
IC 2118 (also known as Witch Head Nebula due to its shape) is an extremely faint reflection nebula believed to be an ancient supernova remnant or gas cloud illuminated by nearby supergiant star Rigel in the constellation of Orion.

Skull and Crossbones Nebula thumbnail
The Skull & Crossbones Nebula is an active star-forming region approximately 20,000 light years away.

Planetary Nebula IC5148 thumbnail
A glowing shell of ionized gas ejected from a dying star, IC5148 is at the end of its life, shedding its outer layers and contracting from a red giant to a white dwarf.

Prawn Nebula in Emission Line Color thumbnail
IC 4628, sometimes known as The Prawn Nebula, is an emission nebula located around 6000 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius
